    A buzzing sound? The only time I hear a buzzing sound from the CFLs is when the CFL is going to fail soon.

    But the only ones that I would be within three feet of would be the 8 watt CFLs in some of my side table lamps.


    I haven't noticed anything similar with LEDs though... I sometimes read with an LED flashlight. Haven't seen the yellow ones... will be sure to look them up.
    Good luck. Local LED light bulbs are few and most are just decorative instead of being a real light source.

    I don't think the ban on incandescent bulbs would be that strict. It would cover normal channels of retail (hardware, supermarkets, etc) and importation (containerized) only.

    I don't think personal purchases abroad would be covered by the ban.

    The light itself. It's not an anoying flicker like old flourescents, but it's there. You can't see it, but it causes headaches and eyestrain over time. Running multiple fixtures lessens it, though.

    That's the big problem. You can boost an LED's output with proper reflector design, but most makers don't seem to have cottoned on to that fact, yet...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

Matipid ang CFL pero ok ba sa health?
